Prison officials say in a news release that 57-year-old Gage Capone died early Tuesday morning at Bryan Medical Center-West. Capone had begun serving a 35- to 57-year sentence in 2017 after being convicted in Lancaster County of making terroristic threats. He was sentenced as a habitual criminal.
State law requires a grand jury investigation any time a person dies in state custody.
